One Little Word

For the past two years, I have chosen One Little Word to concentrate my efforts for the year. 2007's word was BELIEVE and 2008 was FOCUS. Whereas I can continue to use both words as areas of focus (no pun intended), I decided to choose a new word for 2009. Here it is, with some of the definitions that stuck out to me.

bal⋅ance   /ˈbæləns/
a state of equilibrium or equipoise; an adjustment of accounts; the power or means to decide.

"Work, love and play are the great balance wheels of man's being.” - Orison Swett Marden

I'm looking forward to seeking balance in 2009- with my job, my home, my life, on the scale (LOL). When I think of walking on a balance beam, you can't rush through, or you'll fall. I'll try to slow down and focus as I strive towards balance.

I encourage you to pick a word in the new year!

29 Days of Giving

Back in October, I signed up to do a 29 Days of Giving Challenge. Although I did more than what I posted on my 29 Days site, I never officially did 29 days in a row. This morning, I was reminded again of the challenge - and thought I'd try again! I realized this will put me through the end of December ~ what a great way to spend the holiday season!

I encourage you to sign up - isn't giving what it's all about?
